History of Youth For Future

Emre Caglar founded YFF in 2021 with a clear goal: to promote all 17 Sustainable Development Goals through action and awareness. The organization achieved this by collaborating with clubs from different international schools in Japan. Starting with just three core members, the group operating YFF expanded to over 30 students by 2023.


Past events organized by YFF focused on making different age groups, from primary to high school, aware of and engaged with the Sustainable Development Goals. For instance, they conducted annual Environmental Flipgrid Weeks for primary students to understand the climate crisis. The organization also held joint events like trash pickups, involving students from various schools, with attendance often exceeding 30 participants.


In September 2023, YFF revamped its mission to have a more focused impact. The leadership decided to prioritize aiding students in both Less Economically Developed Countries (LEDCs) and developed nations. The organization's new emphasis is on equipping LEDC students with school supplies and building water wells, creating a conducive and effective learning environment.
